  • New court members seem to feel right at home

    So far, the new faces in the Harrison County Fiscal Court seem to be complimenting the veteran members.
    Covering Harrison County Fiscal Court meetings has allowed me to see first-hand just how well the new court members are gelling with veteran members.
    It has often been said that new members of any committee or board go through a transition phase where they are just trying to find their niche.
    However, as a spectator of the meetings, I have found that the new members are fitting in quite well and have few signs of growing pains.

  • There are two sides to the Cynthiana by-pass issue

    I have mixed emotions about the by-pass around Cynthiana that’s set to get underway this summer.
    I can see the benefits for those who commute north and south to work and school. When you talk about spending two hours of your day on the road, cutting out 10 or 15 minutes of one-way drive time would be a big deal.

    We’ve grown a little. Not by leaps and bounds mind you, but certainly a respectable increase.
    Since the 2000 Census where Harrison County recorded an 18,250 population, we’ve experienced a 3.27 percent rise to 18,846, according to statistics released this month.

  • Much-debated Medicaid issue closes with solution from Representatives

    FRANKFORT – After nearly two months’ worth of work, several weeks of intense debate and a long day on Thursday, the Kentucky House of Representatives finalized the legislative session’s most pressing issue: Closing a sizeable deficit in Medicaid.
    Our approach was a little different, but the end result accomplished what we wanted, which was to keep the solution within the healthcare program and not needlessly cut millions of dollars out of our classrooms, our local governments, our veteran services and dozens of other state agencies.
